I cant rate this site high enough. The activities and ideas are fantastic, varied and very relevant to our service. I log on every morning to see what's new and I'm always printing and using your materials. Honestly the best site I know of to provide activities for older people.
What activities can be done with social groups around Rememberance and the 100th anniversary next week. Trying to think of joyful things to do as well as thoughtful things.
The Remembrance celebration this year is very special, the ceremony should include:
Poems - There is something very touching to see an elderly person reading a poem, either alone or together with a son or a daughter.
Blessings and the reading of scriptures - From the Bible or other religious denomination books.
Wearing a Poppy - If possible made by the residents
Craft - Have a session prior to the date to build a colorful poster and/or a garland of flowers for your facility
Singalong - When Johnny Came Marching Home, Imagine, Blowin’ in the Wind.
